This is already covered in the Trust agreement section 6.1, which states 
that the IAOC are "Eligible Persons", and they become Trustees when they 
agree to that in writing. The addition makes the administrative 
procedures consistent with the trust agreement - but why say it twice?

This is already covered in the Trust Agreement section 6.1 (c) - the 
expiration of the IAOC would reduce the number of Eligible Persons to 
zero, making the IESG, or the IESG's successor as the leadership of the 
IETF, repsonsible for picking at least 3 people to serve as temporary 
Trustees.

So this proposed change would be in breach of the trust agreement - not 
good.

The administrative procedures need to refer to section 6.1 of the trust 
agreement; creativity is bad.
